In this groundbreaking book, David Rieff offers a masterly review of whether the end of extreme poverty and widespread hunger is within our reach.
Rieff, a leading expert on humanitarian aid and development, searches the causes of our food security crisis, as well as what lies behind the failures to respond to disaster. Rieff cautions against the increased privatization of aid, as well as the interventions of celebrity campaigners. The path ahead demands we rethink the fundamental causes of the world's grotesque inequalities and understand that what is at stake is a political challenge we are failing to confront.
